Route Climbed: Scramble Date Climbed: May 25, 2005
Bright and sunny when I left Canmore, but snowing by the time I hit the ridge. Not a sole, no vehicles even on Spray Lake Road. But that is the advantage of doing objectives early in the season and midweek. Made a fast trip out of it, 5 hrs return. Book says 6-9, but that variation would be typical when I am solo. Going in May (the book says July on) works out best for this mountain due to the bushwhacking involved. The snow is manageable; I took snowshoes but did not need them. Any hard pack on the ridge actually makes the trip smoother (as long as you are not treading on a cornice). Cheers!
